SeniorFriendFinder.com is a dating site geared towards seniors looking for dates with other seniors and those who are attracted to the older set. The site also features search functions for nontraditional encounters for those seeking group and same-sex sexual experiences, though the vast majority of the membership is in search of more standard fare, seeking proper dates and companionship.
The site has a large user base, so it is very likely that you will be able to find someone who is compatible nearby. The site also boasts community features catering to the mature set with public message boards and personal blogs where members can discuss whatever is on their minds. Another interesting feature are the member-created “groups” which are public forums devoted to specific geographical locations or for example, hobbies. On these forums you’ll have the opportunity to communicate with members who share your passions and/or live in your area. For those looking for real-time communication, there’s direct instant messaging as well as public chat rooms where users can talk in what is a very popular, freewheeling live text-based conversation among seniors from all over. Senior Friend Finder also boasts an unusual and useful option for online daters called “confirmID” which is a user verification service where members privately upload an image of an official document such as their drivers license to be reviewed by the staff and if your stats and appearance match your ID, you get a “confirmed” badge for your profile which proves you’re serious about dating and more importantly that you are the person your profile says you are, which as everybody knows, misrepresentation can be a major annoyance when trying to find your perfect match using the internet. All public photos are strictly “G-Rated” and the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and inviting for people in their golden years.
Public photos are limited to ‘G-rated’ shots, and the tone of the site and its membership is decidedly traditional, so if you are looking for explicit pictures and a sexually charged atmosphere, it’s not to be found here. The community features such as the chat rooms, forums and groups are all fully functional with the free membership, though direct communication with other members is impossible without purchasing a premium membership, though there is more than adequate functionality for you to make an informed decision as to whether the site will fulfill your needs. Should you decide to sign up for a premium membership, there are two levels, Silver and Gold with term lengths of either one or three months.
SeniorFriendFinder.com is an easy to use dating site for seniors and those seeking a relationship with same with an easy to use search engine that is made even more powerful with the purchase of a premium membership, allowing the search for very specific characteristics. The additional community features are quite lively and popular and are accessible even to those using the site with a free membership. The free membership level provides sufficient usability for seniors seeking a mate to know if the expense is a worthwhile one in their search for companionship and those fees are reasonably priced, even for those on a fixed income.
